. in washington. let me start tonight with this romney search for a running mate. what's he really looking snore a partner to run the country with for the next eight years or four years? does anybody really believe he's out there looking for someone to share the burden and grandeur of office? is it someone to be in the room when decisions are called for? does anyone believe romney is the kind of guy to share the decision-making power of the presidency? so what does he want? someone to help win the election, obviously. someone to get him a state he's unlikely to get otherwise. that he'd pick portman perhaps of ohio or rubio of florida. they'll get him a state each. someone to complement his personality. that's to use that term loosely. someone to offset his rich guy stiffness and remoteness. then he'd pick a regular middle-class guy like, say, tim pawlenty of minnesota. how about someone to show ideological conviction, the kind people don't really associate with romney himself? then paul romney would make the case. i've got an idea. how about he makes a running mate decision that shows whoa, mitt
is about tax fairness. mitt romney's tax policies give advantages to the very wealthy at the expense of middle class families in america. that's his plan. this is why so many people want to see mitt romney's tax returns. who is this guy? what does he believe? for the past week, senate majority leader harry reid, i mean, this guy's been raked over the coals for saying he has a source that told him that mitt romney didn't pay any taxes for ten years. well, a new article is out. "u.s. news and world reports" shows that how romney could get away with a ridiculously low tax rate. the article quotes an accounting professor from the university of notre dame saying that i wouldn't be surprised if mitt romney paid nearly zero taxes in 2008 and 2009. mitt romney says, this isn't true. >> now let me also say categorically, i have paid taxes every year and a lot of taxes. >> ooh, i want to see that. well, when your income is sitting around $20 million a year, you're going to pay a lot of taxes. even if your tax rate is at 1%. that's where i think the american people are. that's a heck of a lot o
expect in two hours. >> i think what you expect is romney campaign pulling out the big guns and i'm not just talking about the "uss wisconsin." we're talking about paul ryan, we haven't seen signs yet, wolf. i should mention. i've been on the event site. we've not seen paul ryan signs at the event site at this point. i'm standing in line to go through security to get into this event site. i don't know if you want to call it a glitch, but 7:00 a.m. when most major television networks want to be on the air reporting this news, all of the networks are honie phoning in, we're phoning in this report as opposed to being live on the air, showing that battleship behind us, showing that impressive back drop behind us, we're all sort of standing in line getting ready to go inside this site. it shows the last-minute nature what the romney campaign has done by alerting everybody late last night. putting out this press release very late last night. this is a herculean effort pulling this off, not just with the news media, but the campaign, secret service, everybody involved. >> i want to be pr
romney's very bad day just got a whole lot worse tonight. conservatives are so mad at his campaign that >> anyone who donates to mitt romney, and i mean the big donors, ought to call mitt romney and say, if andrea saul isn't fired and off the campaign tomorrow, they are not giving another dime, because it is not worth fighting for this man if this is the kind of spokesman he has, to respond to an ad like this by citing health care in massachusetts?! >> but, listen. what we're watching and witnessing here -- >> no, i'm serious about this. >> i know you're serious. i agree with you. >> there's no reason doing your show, there's no point in us going to a convention and pushing for a man like this if he is employing morons like this. she has snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. off the campaign. >> good evening. i'm alex wagner in for lawrence o'donnell. moments ago, ann coulter appeared on fox news, where she called on mitt romney to immediately fire his spokeswoman for remarks she made earlier today. >> obviously, it's unfortunate when anyone loses their job. this particular cas
. there was nothing they could do for her. she passed away in 22 days. i do not think mitt romney realizes what he has done to anyone. furthermore i do not think mitt romney is concerned. >> reaction from the right wing is predictable. several personalities said that democrats were accusing mitt romney of murder. >> what we are seeing is a morally bankrupt charge of murder and it couldn't be imagined or envisioned in any free state. >> they actually with a straight face attempt to make this argument beneath contempt and does not deserve a dignified response. >> mitt romney killed that guy's wife. >> for you think this ad said mitt romney kled a woman, you are missing the point the way this is being played out. this ad is a testimonial from one individual. joe believes his life was affected negatively by mitt romney's business activities. right wingers call it slanderous. here's what we know. bain capital became the majority shareholder of gst steel and bain added $100 million in debt to the company. mitt romney left to run the olympics, but remained ceo and chairman of bain. gst steel declared bankrup
committed, in heart and mind, to putting that experience to work in a romney administration. [ applause ] this is a crucial moment in the life of our nation, and it is absolutely vital that we select the right man to lead america back to prosperity and greatness. that man is standing right next to me. his name is mitt romney, and he will be the next president of the united states of america. my dad died when i was young. he was a good and decent man. there are a few things he would say that have just always stuck with me. he would say, son, you're either part of the problem or part of the solution. well, regrettably, president obama has become part of the problem and mitt romney is the solution. the other thing my dad would always say is that every generation of americans leaves their children better off. that's the american legacy. sadly for the first time in our history, we are on a path which will undo that legacy. that is why we need new leadership to become part of the solution, new leadership to restore prosperity, economic growth and jobs. it is our duty to save the american drea
to join you as your running mate. i want to tell you about mitt romney. mitt romney is a leader with the skills, the background and the character that our country needs at this crucial time in its history. following four years of failed leadership, the hopes of our country, which have inspired the world are growing dim. they need someone to revive them. governor romney is the man for this moment. and he and i share one commitment. we will restore the greatness of this country. i want you to meet my family. this is my wife janna. our daughter liza and our sons charlie and sam. i'm surrounded by the people i love. i love you, too. and i've been asked by governor romney to serve the country that i love. janesville, wisconsin, is where i was born and raised, and i never really left it. it's our home now. for the last 14 years, i have proudly represented wisconsin in congress. there i have focused on solving the problems that confront our country, turning ideas into action and action into solutions. i am committed, in heart and mind, to putting that experience to work in a romney adm
absolute fits. they're trying to defend mitt romney by calling robin hood a tea party member. >> robin hood was stealing from the government. robin hood was a tea party activist. robin hood was anti-taxes. >> but all the right wing noise can't hide the fact that the president's larger point is this. a major message of this election is about tax fairness. mitt romney's tax policies give advantages to the very wealthy at the expense of middle class families in america. that's his plan. this is why so many people want to see mitt romney's tax returns. who is this guy? what does he believe? for the past week, senate majority leader harry reid, he's been raked over the coals for saying he has a source that told him that mitt romney didn't pay any taxes for ten years. well, a new article is out. "u.s. news and world reports" shows that how romney could get away with a ridiculously low tax rate. the article quotes an accounting professor from the university of notre dame saying i wouldn't be surprised if mitt romney paid nearly zero taxes in 2008 and 2009. mitt romney says, this isn
new polls show president obama is widening his lead over romney. romney is coming off the rough overseas trip as well. do you really think this will be a game changer today? >> this is certainly a bold move for romney either way. he may have been hurting. last poll said he has taken a nose dive. his approval and favorable ratings have gone down. those numbers may have been just enough of an edge, just enough of a push to have him decide between a more safe, maybe some would say a boring choice like portman than someone who is more bold and aggressive as paul ryan. >> is this his way of attracting blue collar voters as well? >> he goes back to wisconsin, fifth generation local native. much like joe biden did when he was in congress. he knows that town. he's a blue collar town and of those folks. >> he also wants to reverse what he calls deep spending mistakes made by the bush administration, he doesn't want to go down that road again. big attraction for the romney campaign knowing that. >> he's very much against heavy government spending. and in fact also does not want to raise t
. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to the ed show. i'm michael dyson in for ed schultz. mitt romney is horsing around with billionaire donors in aspen while president obama is fighting for the middle class. tonight i'll show you mitt's fancy dancing on taxes. this is the ed show. as ed would say, let's get to work. >> mitt romney's middle class tax increase. he pays less, you pay more. >> on the air and on the stump, president obama is drilling mitt romney over his middle class tax hike. and the romney team is trying to change the narrative. >> that report you referenced is a joke. >> tonight, karen finney on the politics of romney's ongoing tax nightmare. and dean baker on the undeniable policy implications. >>> and why on earth is twitter getting on gabby douglas over her hair? i'll explain. >>> president obama has mitt romney on the ropes over a tax plan that doesn't add up and would raise taxes on the middle class. just one day after a damage independent analysis, the obama campaign put out an ad that will air in eight battle ground states. >> mitt romney made $20 million in 201
and that you can to all of you. it's friday, august the 31st and team romney is happy to get away from clint eastwood any which way they can. >> i will work with all my energy and soul to restore that america. >> what? what do you want me to tell romney? >> now is a time to restore the promise of america. >> i've got mr. obama sitting here. i was just going to ask him a couple of questions. >> when the world needs someone to do the really big stuff, you need an american. >> can't do that to himself. you're absolutely crazy. >> i didn't know it was coming. >> restore every father and mother's confidence that their children's future is brighter even in the past. and they are off. mitt romney and paul ryan have departed florida, hitting the road as official nominees of the republican party. they took off on their new rides, twin campaign planes, slapped with the words, believe in america, with ryan off to virginia and romney bound for new orleans to tour damage from hurricane isaac in the flooded suburb of lafitte. perfectly timed for romney to mock concerns about the oceans warming and its imp
